The (Long) Journey of a Painting
November 22, 2016
I finished a new painting! It took me about six months. Long journey, right? The good news is that I absolutely love it. The bad news is that you don't get to see it until tomorrow. Today is simply about the journey.
I came back from Australia in May and was all creatively charged up. I wanted to paint! And so I did:
But then things got busy. I started working on projects for Make It Artsy and the painting pretty much became a cool background for photos.
Some time during the summer I decided to attack the canvas once more. It went in two waves.
Wave one: drips.
Wave two: stenciling.
I thought the painting might be done at this point. But someone came by and mentioned that they didn't think it was and I let that bug get in my ear. Shouldn't have, but I did. So, the painting sat and stared (quite literally) at me for several months.
This Fall I decided to try and improve it.
Maybe it's done now?
Well, I just couldn't leave well enough alone.
Ugh. What is it now?
Well, you'll have to come back tomorrow to see the finished (and it definitely is finished -- I signed it and hung it in my kitchen) painting!
Thanks for stopping by!
